University of Colorado Boulder to start spring semester remotely

The University of Colorado Boulder will begin the spring 2022 semester remotely on Jan. 10 with in-person instruction scheduled to resume on Jan. 24, campus officials announced Friday evening.

A rise in COVID-19 cases and local impacts of the destructive Marshall fire prompted the remote start, according to a CU news release.

“By delaying our in-person return until Jan. 24, we are doing our part to support the community,” said Chancellor Phil DiStefano in a message to the campus community. “The remote start will allow us to provide the support needed to our impacted students, faculty and staff who may not be able to teach or attend classes in person. It will also help us provide resources in support of community-wide recovery efforts.”

Faculty and staff are encouraged to work remotely during this time if possible.

In his message, DiStefano shared details about the launch of a new website with fire resources for the campus community.
